Board on Retreat

The Board of Education is holding its annual retreat today starting at 9 a.m. in the Plainfield High School conference room, 950 Park Ave.

After a month off in July, the board will resume its meeting schedule Tuesday with work and study session at 8 p.m. in the Administrative Building at 1200 Myrtle Avenue. Even though the left-hand link on the school district web page says there are no current meetings, the information was published last week and can be seen on the right-hand side of the page. The agenda is also posted there, although the Board of Education link says there is no current agenda.

The business meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Aug. 18 in the auditorium of the Administrative Building, 1200 Myrtle Ave.

Plaintalker is not routinely covering school board meetings but will attempt to highlight district issues when possible. Congratulations to Schools Superintendent Steve Gallon III and Plainfield High School Principal Brian Bilal for overcoming last year's state designation of PHS as a "persistently dangerous school" based on events that preceded the two administrators' advent to the district.
